we can't not discuss you this, the scandal surrounding david petraeus' resignation. do you think he should have resigned since he is serving such a critical role? >> yes, i think general petraeus, who is without any question one of the finest generals of our generation did the right thing. because general petraeus knew what a leader really means in the military. and that is a leader is given great responsibility and with that authority, but with them both goes accountability. because he well understood that if you lose the trust, a purposeful group will discindy great eventually into chaos. even though it may seem cruel to civilian life, it is what is most wanted by the american people in their political leaders. and i think it is wanting today just like where you began this interview with hose leaders in the united states senate who aren't willing to be accountable for those men and women who they sent to war and wouldn't give them the benefits that they deserve. i think general petraeus did the right thing and the president did the right thing in accepting it. it speaks to account
